Maritzburg ‘Hairy Pony Show’ back

2014-06-12 00:00

THE Pietermaritzburg Pony Show, fondly known as the ‘July Show’ or ‘Hairy Pony Show’, is making its return to the city.

This will be the 52nd PMB Pony show, making it one of the longest-standing events in the equestrian calendar. The show has traditionally been held at the Royal Agricultural Show Grounds in July, where it ran annually until 2009, when it was eventually disbanded following venue and date changes.

The show will be held over five days at the show grounds, from July 2-6.

As a training show it is open to competitors of all abilities, with classes aimed at riders and mounts who may not be riding at an otherwise competitive level.

The wide variety of classes means that there is something for everyone, with show-jumping events ranging from 30 cm to 1,10 metres, equitation, a full horse and pony showing programme, including in-hand and lead-rein classes, and fun classes, grooms’ races and a mounted church service.

For more information, schedules and entry forms please contact Samantha Habermann on 079 245 3548, or visit the PMB Pony Show Facebook page.
